Was sitting here minding my own business when notification went off for my email. I was a little befuddled because it is after 6. No one emails me after 6.
I checked the email and noticed it was from the school division with red and urgent vibes coming off the page. I clicked it open and began to read.
Last week one of the middle schools was closed to in-person learning because a threat had been called in against staff and students. Students had a day of classes at home.
Thursday both the same middle school here as well as the one in a neighboring community closed. Again threats being made against staff and students.
Thursday evening threats were again made against the middle school and now the high school. As a precaution classes are closed to in person learning. Cold weather class protocols are in effect. Meaning the kids still have to check in and get their assignments.
This is not funny. Not funny in the least.
Last week’s call was traced to a number in the states. Have not read anything yet on if these calls have been traced.
I am glad the schools and the school division are on top of the situation and keeping our children and their teachers safe. It is just not something you think of when you think about my city. It truly is disconcerting.
